Are the Nuggets just “a regular-season success story?” Bill Simmons thinks so. He also thinks the fans are terrible.
On the Wednesday episode of “The Lowe Post” podcast, Simmons said he doesn’t buy the Nuggets being a legitimate contender despite being the No. 1 team in the Western Conference. “I like watching the Nuggets,” he said, but “I think they just have a lot of young dudes.”
About the team’s fan base, he said: “Their home-court advantage (is terrible). What the hell is going on in Denver? Why is there 5,000 fans from the other teams at half of these games? What’s happening? Where are these Nuggets fans?”
Zach Lowe added: “Every time I watch them, they’re always bragging about whatever ‘X consecutive sell out this is. It’s not a very high number. Any team who’s broadcasting, who’s bragging about the attendance means the attendance has been a problem in the past.”
